Farm Credit of the Virginias, a financial cooperative serving farmers, ranchers and rural homeowners in Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland recently announced that Tim Long will be retiring more than 27 years of service.
Tim has been a valuable asset to the Farm Credit of the Virginias’ team since coming on board as a Commercial Ag loan officer more than 27 years ago. Long has helped finance many farms in Rockingham County and has now helped many of their children get started in agriculture. Harrisonburg branch manager, Adam Shiflett said, “Tim has been a mentor for customers and employees over the years and his passion and wealth of knowledge in agriculture will be missed”. Shiflett also mentioned, “we wish him the best in a well deserved retirement”.
When asked about his experience at Farm Credit over the years, Tim replied, “the best part about working with Farm Credit has been the opportunity to build long lasting relationships with my clients.”
